These are the materials you will need for this project. A lot of plastic bags, a hot glue gun, scissors, and ribbon, colorful hot glue (optional, (in the sewing box)) and any other fun decorations! 

Step 2:

Put one plastic bag in the other, and glue them together. (If hot glue melts the bags, quickly press them together, and the plastic will 'fuse' together.) Put on the bags like a shirt, to see if it fits.

Step 5:

Take another plastic bag, and cut the side and the bottom seam.

Thanks! I come up with really weird things when I get bored but this one turned out okay! By the way i don't know what happened to this dress but it would be interesting to dig it out to see if I could still wear it! ???
